We have a Cisco network with two sites joined by a gigaman leased line. Whenever we try to transfer a large file (18 gigabytes) from one site to the other, many of the switches on both sites get such a backlog of traffic that the entire network is brought to a standstill. Transferring the same file to a computer on the same site does not cause a problem.
I realize this is a very general description of the problem, but can you suggest in general what I should be looking for to solve it? I'll be glad to supply more detailed info if requested. Thanks. -G.
